no... it's just a paste... It might hold after setting as long as they are on top of the card, so gravity doesn't take effect, but I really don't think so.

Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive is adhesive. you could use the AS5 at the centre of the chip and superglue the sink down but i wouldn't reccomend it
